Long before you were conceived by your parents, you were conceived in the mind of God. He thought of you first. It is not fate, nor chance, nor luck, nor coincidence that you are breathing at this very moment.
You are alive because God wanted to create you! Ephesians 1:4 says, “Long before He laid down earth’s foundations, He had us in mind, had settled on us as the focus of His love.”
In Psalm 139:15–16, David declares that God’s eyes were fixed on us not only when we were in the earliest stages of being formed in our mothers’ wombs, but even before we were conceived. This means there isn’t a single human being on the earth who was a surprise to God, and that includes you!
You are the crowning glory of the creation of God, and as a result, you have an inherent dignity, worth, and value. When you realize God is the one responsible for your life, you are accountable to God to make Him the focus of your life, so that through Him and in Him, you can discover its meaning and purpose. Nothing in your life is arbitrary. It’s all for a purpose. He has a purpose for your life. He wants to use you! He wants you to be a significant part of His plan!
Scriptures to Read: Colossians 1:16; Ephesians 1:11-12
QUESTIONS TO CONSIDER:
• What is stopping me from accepting that God has a divine plan for my life?
• Am I focusing on God to discover my purpose?
Lord, I am so glad that You knew me and called me even before I was conceived in my mother’s womb. According to Your Word, I am no mistake; therefore, I ask You to help me start looking at my life with respect, esteem, and honor. You called me, and You have an awesome plan for my life. I ask You to help me uncover that plan, so I can get started on the road of obedience toward fulfilling what You brought me into this world to do! In Jesus’ name, amen.
